Movie Info

Everybody at Mack Sennett's Keystone studios was expected to do a little bit of everything, which is why bassett-faced comedian Hank Mann both directed and co-starred in the 2-reel laughfest The Village Blacksmith. Burly Tom Kennedy plays the title character, while gawky Polly Moran is cast as the Smithy's sweetie, a laundress. A refined young lady (Vivien Edwards) becomes fascinated by the Smithy's remarkable feats of strength, including his ability to pound nails with his knuckles. The girl succeeds in stealing Kennedy away from Moran, which of course precipitates a climactic confrontation between the two females. Though The Village Blacksmith contained more plot than was usual for Keystone, sight gags and slapstick still predominate. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
